Akitu, in the Maori language, means the summit, the apex or the highest point. At 380 metres above sea level the vineyard is right up there, right on the grape growing edge, against the alps and in the southern most winemaking region on earth. The entire vineyard is dedicated to Pinot noir - that's all they grow - and the very best of the harvest makes akitu.

Foods

An autumn road-trip picnic spread on a rug by a stream: saucissons, pork rillettes, cornichons and crusty baguette. One of those little ash-rolled goat's cheese to finish - that'll work.

Oak

French oak, 13% new

Colour

Bright crimson red with ruby hues.

Nose

Lifted, bright cherry and raspberry fruit catch the attention. There is an underlying spice and earth tone that intrigues. Subtle wafts of cinnamon buns, leafy lavender and quite lovely rose petal notes. Gorgeous clean fruit and subtle complexity on the nose.

Palate

The entry is soft and generous and shows primary fruit in abundance. This wine has an effusive succulence that truly satiates. The texture and structure evolve nicely, with stunning fine-grained tannins - dusty and silky at the same time. Bright acidity lifts the juiciness of the fruit with resulting length and persistence. Long, soft and generous with a bright fruit focus. This wine has had no finings and minimal filtration so a fine sediment may form during maturation.
